FINAL STRATEGIC PLAN ONLINE: The UNI Cabinet and Governance groups have
finalized the UNI 2001 - 2006 Strategic Plan "Focused on Excellence,"
and the plan is now on the university's web site at
The new strategic plan will be presented to the Board of Regents for
approval later this year. This new plan is the result a collaborative
effort that involved representatives from across campus. The plan is
based on the presumption that UNI does, and will continue to do, many
things well. Therefore the plan focuses on the handful of initiatives
that can have an impact over the next five years, maintaining the core
of an already fine institution while moving us forward at the margins.
2000/2001 PARKING PERMITS: Current parking permits expire on August 20.
Online applications for 2000/2001 parking permits will close on Aug. 15,
to allow for processing. Apply online via Access UNI on the UNI home

VISITOR PARKING CHANGES: To help accommodate an ever-increasing need
for student, staff and faculty parking, the university will soon direct
visitors primarily to a new lot designated specifically for visitors.
"Beginning August 1, the lot on the north side of the Gallagher-Bluedorn
Performing Arts Center will be reserved for campus visitors and should
be the first place we direct general visitors to campus," says David
Zarifis, associate director of Public Safety. "This will help provide
consistent access to parking for staff, faculty and students."
